I don’t exactly remember when I first realized there was this other band out there with a fan base that resembled ours – seeing folks wearing their t-shirts at shows etc. - and it only caused me passing interest at the time. But much more recently, I have come to appreciate how good they were/are. I think I totally understand the distaste many have for Phish - they play some very odd songs/music, many with annoying repetitious lyrics.

Viewing the official dvds was a big factor in my realizing their talents, and I can see how they built up such a tremendous following. Through a buddy at work I now have a vast collection of their music. I never saw them, but thought it was very exciting when they got back together. When those Hampton comeback show mp3s were first (temporarily) posted I downloaded every one, edited and burned them to cd ( 3 disc each night), and made many copies to spread around. Good stuff – I dig it!

right on! go to a show this summer... you will not regret it.... if you appreciate their stuff on CDs, you will love a live show. i got 3 shows last year, and they were all great!

i flew 3,000 miles to catch the fall tour closer in Charlottesville, Va and they did not disappoint.... i thought they were gonna end the first set about 3 times and they kept going.... these guys know how to work the crowd!
